Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts Enters West Africa

Accra (Ghana) now has a Mövenpick property, the 260-room Mövenpick Ambassador Hotel.

Originally built and presented as a gift by the UK to Ghana after gaining independence in 1957, the completely rebuilt Mövenpick Ambassador is ideally located downtown in the central business district, close to Government ministries, major financial institutions, Accra International Conference Centre and 7km from Kotoka International Airport.

The hotel blends every aspect of 21st century excellence alongside original artwork from contemporary Ghanaian artists with stunning wooden carvings of animals, artefacts and design features.  This spellbinding collection of over 1,500 pieces of art adds to the quality of the Mövenpick Ambassador.  Many works have been lovingly restored from the days of the old hotel and are displayed in the main lobby and behind the reception area.

All the hotel rooms have free high-speed internet and a 40-inch LCD TV.  Also featured are Executive Club rooms with their exclusive dedicated 24hr Club Lounge, 15 junior suites and a palatial 350sq m presidential suite, overlooking the pool and 16 acres of lush landscaped gardens.  These include the largest swimming pool in Ghana – so large that the staff serve poolside guests on roller blades to ensure the drinks stay perfectly chilled. www.moevenpick-accra.com
